ROGNAN: IKEA robotic furniture for mini floors

IKEA

Have you noticed that the rental apartments are getting smaller and smaller? At least, those in the center of cities (not to mention studies, the most demanded option by university students and newly independent young people). If we add to this the high cost of rentals, agony is served.

And it is that modern life has brought with it undoubted advances, but the massification of cities is not one of them. "More and more people are moving to cities, 1.5 million every week according to some studies," they say from IKEA. For this reason, being aware of the low quality of life that cities offer, the Nordic firm, in collaboration with the startup Ori, has developed a new line of robotic furniture called ROGNAN.
